In The House of Leviathan - By Bestselling Author, B.D. Bruns


Recently, it seems the horror genre has been overrun with teen melodrama. Just google "why Twilight is bad" to get a sense of the disdain (my personal favorite is from The Oatmeal).

Bestselling author, B.D. Bruns wants to know, "what happened to just plain scary?"

In his new book, In The House of Leviathan, Bruns avoids the overdone teen drama and instead relies on classic gothic elements to create tension and terror.  “Mainstream horror has gone so mainstream that it isn’t scary anymore,” says Bruns. “Glittering teenage vampires aren’t even intended to be scary. But, classics like Bram Stoker’s Dracula, now that was terrifying. The difference is that Stoker embraced the unknown. I hope that readers of In The House of Leviathan find my embrace of the unknown to be equally thrilling.”

Set in an Italian paper mill during the 1860s , In The House of Leviathan follows Giuseppe, a humble man working in the mill, who witnesses Old Man Grapaldi summoning the Devil. Omens from the sea threaten the village and bizarre, violent happenings at their mill threaten his family. With their church rocked by inner turmoil and so many good men succumbing to dark secrets, Giuseppe himself must overcome his fears and his physical handicap to save his beloved sister.

Throughout the pages of In The House of Leviathan, readers can expect:

A reinvigoration of the classic horror and gothic genre.

Vivid imagery transporting readers to Italy’s exotic Amalfi Coast.

A connection between our greatest fictional thrills and the exotic history of the real world.

A throwback to masterfully built tension, believable characters with rich backgrounds and plot complexity informed by real world experiences.


Adventurer B. D. Bruns has traveled to over 50 countries to gather material for his bestselling books. He’s won 19 national and international book awards, including three national Book of the Year awards. Bruns’ first fiction book, The Gothic Shift (2014) won the International Book Awards Best Short Story Collection.

He also contributes to Yahoo Travel, BBC, CNN, The Daily Beast, and The Travel Channel.

Bruns’ travel adventures span from entering the Pyramids of Giza and swimming in the Panama Canal to climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and touring Torture Museums in Estonia.

He has attended ceremonies from the descendants of cannibals in the South Pacific and has been consulted by a ghost tour in Malta. After residing in Dracula’s hometown for several years, Bruns moved to Las Vegas with his Romanian wife, where they live with two cats, Julius and Caesar.

43 Witnesses To Can Shaped UFO And Sighting Of A Creature In 1989 In Fujian Province China


 From Brian Vike’s UFO Files. (Older Report)

Note: I have been gong through a bunch of older sighting reports I received in the past, these reports were posted on my old HBCC UFO Research website, but when I removed the site from the internet, something major went wrong and a ton of reports got lost.

These reports are either buried around the internet, etc., and a lot of them are not on my blogs from what I can see, so I am going to re-post these reports, just the ones I thought people would enjoy. I will make sure to mark these ones (Older Report) so you don’t think they are new ones.

Date: 1993
Time: Afternoon 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Location of Sighting: School play ground, Fujing Province, China.
Number of witnesses: 43
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Dark color, just like a coca-cola can-shaped.

Canadian UFO Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: It is so interesting to receives reports from China, we don't seem to get a lot of sighting reports out of the country.

So if anyone who had been living, or residing in China who has been witness to an unusual UFO event, would you please contact me here at The Vike Factor with a detailed report.

Full Description of event/sighting: In the very beginning I thought it was a satellite because of it's dark color and can-shaped out-look.

However, when it flew closer and closer and we did not hear any unusual sound from it, actually not even a sound. It was close enough to observe it completely, and I was the first one who saw it.

Then I asked others to figure it out, including my coach, but no one had ever seen it before.

The object was flying from the north to south in a speed of nearly 50 kilometers per hour, and in the attitude of 500-600 meters, and also I would like to share some of experiences that the people have around me.

On the night of 1989, I was 6 year-old and on that night I was sleeping with my grandma. The mystery occurred on that night was that my grandma actually saw a creature, human-like 3 meters in height standing by the bed, my grandma was very afraid of that creature and didn't dare to switch on the light (the switch was really close enough to reach, well convenient for elder).

On a night of 1996, my cousin went out of his bedroom to use the bathroom, he stood on a step in the back yard, when he was doing his business, he realized a 1.8 meters creature with a tail was standing before him, well that lasted 3 seconds and then he ran back into his bedroom in haste.

In my culture, people are not allowed to point finger to the moon. When I was a child, my grandma told me if I pointed a finger at moon, my ear would be cut.

Nevertheless, I didn't take it for fact, and I did get a ridiculous wound at my left ear.

Then finally, I do really think that UFO has something to do with earthquakes. I know that.

Thank you to the witness for the report.

If anyone has had a UFO/UFOs sighting, please send me an email at sighting@telus.net or fill out the online UFO report form at http://sightings1.yolasite.com/ with details of what you saw.

The Seen And Unseen Dimensions Of Time


By Carisia H. Switala, MTS – Harvard University Divinity School

Author of Eternity’s Secret: What the Bible & Science Have to Say About Time.

I assume most people are aware of the recent “Voice of an Angel” story reported on the news about an 18-month old girl who was found alive in an overturned car 14 hours after it crashed in a Utah river.  The four police officers who rescued the little girl said they heard a woman’s voice calling out for help.  However, the girl’s mother died in the crash and there were no other people in the car.  The officers really believe something otherworldly took place.  Perhaps this story is a good example of the temporal and eternal dimensions of time merging together allowing the mother to call for help from the unseen dimension.

After years of research, I came to the realization that time is an elusive concept.  Most individuals believe that looking at their watch and hurrying to get to work on time is the extent to which this concept is relevant.  However, in my opinion, time is so much more than a measurement of sequential events.  For many years, philosophers and scientists have been trying to explain time.  The ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle, believed that time is the measurement of change.  Whereas Sir Isaac Newton, an influential seventeenth century English physicist and natural philosopher, believed that space was a static container and time was an absolute flow. Newton hypothesized that absolute time exists independently of any observer and moves forward at a steady pace throughout the universe.  He also thought that humans perceive ordinary time as a measurement of objects in motion like the sun.

Saint Augustine, an early Christian theologian and philosopher, believed that time was only in the mind and a human invention that cannot be applied to the universe or to God. Augustine’s view was that God existed in a timeless void. However, as the human mind evolved into a thinking machine that applies science to philosophical questions, the idea of relativity introduced the opinion that time is a physical dimension governed by physical laws. This opened up a more expansive view of the world and the universe.


I believe that the ancient idea of eternity, endless time, is a very profound and complex aspect of the subject.  What seems like the passage of time in a changing world is but an illusion in a three-dimensional space.

It is difficult for humans to visualize space. The standard human experience of space can be described in terms of three dimensions: width, depth, and height. Once the fourth dimension of time is added to the equation, parallel dimensions and universes become a clearer possibility in a space-time continuum. This advancement in thought and knowledge reveals the endless nature of time and the continuation of life, defusing the idea of a timeless void. It is a perspective that views eternity as endless time, not the absence of time as Saint Augustine suggested.

We measure the passage of time in seconds, minutes, hours, and years, but this doesn’t mean that time flows at a constant rate. Just as the water in a river rushes or slows depending on the size of the channel, time flows at different rates in different places. Einstein believed that the past, present, and future all exist simultaneously. In other words, time is relative. So relativity makes it possible, with the proper technology, such as a very fast spaceship, for one person to experience several days while another person simultaneously experiences only a few hours or minutes.

After I delved into scientific theory, I discovered that the idea of parallel universes in quantum mechanics suggests that all possible quantum events can occur in mutually exclusive histories. These alternate, or parallel, histories would form a branching tree, symbolizing all possible outcomes of any interaction. If all possibilities exist, any paradoxes could be explained by having the paradoxical events happening in different universes. This concept leads to the conclusion that time travel is possible, and a time traveler should certainly end up in a different history than the one he or she started from. Hence, relativity and ancient notions of time variation and parallel universes are very similar.

My research into philosophy, theology and science inspired me to merge scientific and religious views about time into one reality of infinite time.  The Bible contains many time-centered passages and reveals eternity to humanity.  Science is also on the verge of discovering the possibility of opening up the fourth dimension of time in order to make breakthroughs in time travel.  When these two disciplines work together, who knows what incredible insights into the seen and unseen dimensions of the universe will be revealed.  The result will most likely be humanity’s inspiration to attain absolute knowledge of the mysteries of eternity.

The new paradigm of time I discerned is endless time. It encompasses the eternal dimension of the universe that allows for infinite life. This dimension contains the unending transformations of nonstop creation. And life doesn’t have to start in the temporal world in order to be infinite because life is eternal and therefore has no starting point. The illusions of the third dimension emanate from a static view of space and time where objects exist and events take place in a linear sequence.  Perhaps one day the next brilliant scientist will be able to mathematically prove the existence of eternity.

UFO Sighting Over Bloomington Indiana With John Tosti And Mark (Last Interview With John - Audio Interview)


From Brian Vike's UFO Files.

The Vike Report.

Brian Vike's Note: I have posted this United States report here on my World Wide page, I have done so due John Tosti passing back on 3-24-2011. I know a lot of people followed John's story through me when I had my HBCC UFO Research website. 

Not many people have heard this last interview. This was done with John and his friend Mark. This also was the last time I spoke to John. In this interview you will hear some of the things they had to put up with when reporting their UFO sighting. The interview was done over Skype.

Black Hawk helicopters, the police and media seem to shy away from John after contacting them.

As some of you know, John Tosti went through a lot when dealing with close encounters from alien craft, and his missing time and alien abduction.

This interview Brian Vike did with John and Mark would have been the last conversation Brian had with John Tosti, as he passed away on 3-24-2011. Also the fellows believe they were followed, had phone taps, etc., after seeing this UFO which is covered in this interview.

Unknown Light/Object Returns To The Sky Over Grimsbury Square Banbury Oxfordshire UK (Pictures)


Date:  February 27, 2015 and March 1, 2015
Time:  Approximately 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Hi Brian, the first sighting was on Friday 27th February 2015 at around 19:00. I was taking a delivery to Grimsbury Square and had been observing a light hanging in the sky, as it had caught my attention while I was taking another delivery, prior.

It was when I'd gotten out of my car to pay more attention, the light that's what piqued my curiosity as it was to bright for a star and not a planet, because it seemed so close.

I do know a lot of people mistake Venus for something extraterrestrial and as I used to be an avid astronomer when I was kid, was able to differentiate between celestial objects and non celestial ones.


After delivering my order, I moved my car to get a better view and to also move away from the customers property and moved just around the corner slightly.

The object appeared to be hanging in a westerly direction, with General Food in the foreground and the object seemingly hanging to the right and up slightly.

Unfortunately I couldn't give chase, as was my desire, because I was still working and couldn't leave early. But the object seemed to be hovering for around 30 minutes, as I lost track of it, when taking out other deliveries, even though I made a point of taking a detour to higher ground to retrack the object, but no joy.

The same object appeared (again) on Sunday 1st March 2015 at around 19:30 and this lasted for maybe 30-45 minutes, but this time I was driving to the Hanwell Fields area, from Warwick Road and noticed a bright object hovering in a northwesterly direction and slightly right to the Drayton Golf Club.

I pulled over to try and confirm if it was Venus, but it just felt all wrong as there were no other viewable, celestial objects.


Considering there was little cloud cover at the time, it seemed strange that I could only see this one object. I did a mental excercise to run through things that it could be (as with the last sighting), it wasn't a flare, helicopter or aircraft, nor was it a Chinese Lantern, as the light being emitted seemed to be a stable white(ish) light that didn't flicker, nor did there seem to be and heat flicker.

I continued trying to observe this light right up until my shift finished at 20:30, where I raced up to the last point I'd observed the light, but it had disappeared, which proves that it wasn't Venus, or any other planet.

I did take a couple of photos on my phone, with the first sighting, but given the distance and quality of the image, it all seems rather blurred and nondescript.

I have attached the images I took, to see if you can come up with any ideas as to what it may have been, but my gut feeling says I was correct with my original observation.

Regards.

Thank you to the witness for their report.

Large Silver Metallic UFO Seen Flying Over Fairview Quezon City Philippines


Date:  March 2, 2015
Time:  10:35 a.m.

Number of Objects: 1
Shape of Objects: Big.
Colour of Object: Silver metallic.

Full Description of Event/Sighting: I was riding my motorcycle with my shade for sun rays. I’m just going to park my motorcycle at the parking lot, when I saw a long line of cloud.

It maybe from the passing jet plane, so that cloud got my attention when suddenly I saw something that is floating near the cloud.

It is silver metallic color and it’s just like an antenna or satellite and floating vertically.

It’s huge, I think its just like a mother ship. I stop driving and I’m just going to take a video, but in a split second it just passed through the clouds and it’s gone.

I’m waiting for it to pass the small cloud, but nothing, it just disappeared in my sight, too bad I don’t have that evidence, but I know what I have witnessed, its up to you all guys believe it or not, I don’t care. There watching us.

Me and my girlfriend spotted vertical orange light at 7:45 p.m. on 4th March 2015 from Ingleby Barwick Teesside North East England.

It was an amazing sight, and I still can’t work out what it was, as I don’t think it’s ice crystals as wasn’t even that cold that night.

Image Of A Spirit By Paul Williams


Does An Unusual Photographic Image Capture the Release Of The Human Soul?

In the new book, Image of a Spirit, Paul Williams shares what followed after he took a picture with a cell phone camera of the space surrounding his mother after she died.

Paul Williams has lived a full and adventure filled. Life. He graduated Harvard Phi Beta Kappa in 1965 and became an accomplished Hollywood film director, dated many beautiful women many of whom became famous in their own right. He was also a devoted son who spent the final weeks of his mom’s life with her in Manhattan. He was there with other family members when she died, on the morning of December 27, 2009.

He watched as the caring women attendants cleaned up his mom’s body and dressed her in her favorite blue shirt. He couldn’t be physical with his mother, so he kept his distance and watched the other prepare his mom for her final journey.

Having been a professional photographer, it was then, an hour and fort-five minutes after she died, that he instinctively grabbed his Blackberry smart phone and snapped a few photos looking above his mother towards the two devoted women and the beautiful, loving expressions on their respective faces as they hovered over her.
Picture Below: Left to Right: Miss P, Mom on her back, invisible-to-the-naked-eye psi figure, Melissa, me on my knees.

A few hours later, he uploaded the pictures to his Macbook laptop, and to his utter amazement, discovered a small--maybe six inches tall, blurry hominoid-like figure just above his mother’s body which had been captured by his cell pone camera.

Williams had taken tens of thousands of photographs in his life, had studied and even taught photography at Harvard.

But nothing prepared him for the image that was before him. The photos clearly showed a small utterly clear, distinct image of a person like entity. One of the women was bothered, even spooked by the images. They couldn’t shake the feeling that something was really weird.

Williams determined that there was no obvious conventional explanation for this small blurry figure. It could not be explained by stray reflections or other well-known optical mechanisms. That much was for certain.


What was in the photos? Was it a picture of his mother’s spirit?

Image of a Spirit is the story of Paul William’s experience as he sought to unravel the mystery of the images.

Williams went on a multi-year quest to determine the possible explanations for the captured images.

He shared the photos and sought advice from several Hollywood celebrities and colleagues.

He took the photos to experts for analysis and validation. He researched the possibilities and contacted with people with the highest credentials in the fields of photography, psi research, chemistry and energy science.

He met with Dean Radin, America’s leading scentist  in the field of psi phenomenon investigation. And he met with Loyd Auerbach, author of the classic ghost image referece, the 1996 ESP, Hauntings and Poltergeists.

He gave the photo to Digital Computer Photography expert Professor Hany Farid, in the Image Science Group at Dartmouth College. Dr. Farid developed with Adobe Corp. (Photoshop) the fool-proof  authenticator of digital photos – utilized by courts, the NY Times, and intelligence agencies. Farid performed the forensic evaluation and verified the authenticity of the photo.

Can a cell phone be used to prove the soul exists?

Image of a Spirit. 

What People Are Saying

I find the image captured an hour after the death, above the corpse, of the mother of Paul Williams, is a really interesting anomaly. It cries out for an explanation. What does it mean? I don't know, but I'd like to know more about it. I've never seen anything like it. This well-written story of Williams' odyssey to answer the question is lively, unexpected, and intriguing.”

ANDREW T. WEIL, M.D., Founder of the field of integrative medicine, famed author of Spontaneous Healing, 8 Weeks to Optimum Health, Healthy Aging and many others

I have never seen such a photograph before—a ”ghost” image that, one, was not amorphous and cloudlike and, two, was comparable to an actual person in continuous time and space—much less one a few inches away and dead less than two hours. I do not know of anyone taking a picture of a specific loved one, so soon after death.

DEAN I. RADIN, PhD, Senior Scientist of the Institute of Noetic Studies, author of The Conscious Universe: The Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena, Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality and others.

There are no extant photos captured in the same time and place as the deceased, nor are any so clear, taken in the modern era of photography.

LOYD AUERBACH, Author of ESP, Hauntings, and Poltergeists: A Parapsychologist's Handbook, A Paranormal Casebook: Ghost Hunting in the New Millennium and others

I confirm that the photo shows no signs of manipulation or alteration. In summary, except for the importing of the photo into iPhoto, I confirm that the image IMG00191.jpg is authentic.

HANY FARID, PhD, Professor, Department of Computer Science at Dartmouth College, Inventor, in partnership with Adobe Corp. (makers of Photoshop) of the fool-proof forensic analysis system of digital photos.

The picture–-and everything that followed-- more than justified Paul Williams writing this extraordinary book, and you and me reading this book carefully.

From the Foreword:

“You are about to read a one-of-a-kind and likely history-making book.  I only have one concern about this book.  The book is so interesting, Williams’ life is so extraordinary (and eccentric), the author is so colorful and such a superb storyteller, that the scientific and spiritual significance of his apparent afterlife communication account may become overshadowed by his life.

“Of course, this makes for fun reading, and I personally enjoyed the book immensely.  However, the primary reason I decided to write this Foreword was to make sure that you, the reader, recognize the potential profundity of what Williams has discovered, and what it might mean for science as well as our personal lives.”


GARY E. SCHWARTZ, PhD - Professor of Psychology, Medicine, Neurology, Psychiatry, and Surgery, and Director of the Laboratory for Post-Materialist Science and Spirituality, at the University of Arizona; author of The Afterlife Experiments, The G.O.D. Experiment, The Energy Healing Experiments, and The Sacred Promise Paul Williams.

Also, since the reproductions in the "print-on-demand" Amazon version of the book had such poor quality reproductions, we are only offering the kindle version--no trade soft cover-- (I hope to get a quality publisher soon for a print edition for sale)

Kindle edition $9.99  (http://www.amazon.com/Image-Spirit-Paul-Williams-ebook/dp/B00SZ4JI3S)

Published by Waterside Press

The first clear image of the human spirit was photographed accidentally, after the death of Paul Williams mother. This is the story of the taking and the subsequent authenticating and evaluating of the photograph by leading world experts.

This book is Williams odyssey of identifying, assessing and understanding a psi photo which clearly shows the image of a “spirit” or “ghost”, present at the same time and in the same place of the corpse.
The book is a narrative documentary which includes the results of interviews and evaluations with numerous researchers and experts along with interactions with many great and highly renowned individuals among them, the medium Sandra O’Hara, Pope John Paul II, Robert M. Gates, Erik H. Erikson, Huey P. Newton, Mescalito, the current Dali Lama’s teacher, H.H. Dilgo Khyntse Rinpoche, Oscar Ichazo, Fidel Castro, Francis Coppola  and Andrew T. Weil, M.D.

Date:  February 22, 2015
Time:  Approximately 4:00 a.m. – 4:30 a.m.

At roughly 4-30 am this morning (22/2/2015) I too saw an orange light. I was awakened by my dog as he wanted out to do his business.

As I opened the door, I saw the light over the west of the city (I am located in Cattedown-Sutton Harbour area).

The light was over toward the Drake Centre area. It continued to travel east then appeared to turn northward before fading.

No sound was heard even though all around was silent (being early on a Sunday morning)

Large Orange Object/UFO/Light Spotted In The Sky Over Greymouth/West Coast New Zealand


Date:  December 2010
Time:  Late evening.

UFO Investigator Brian Vike’s Note: The people who sent in the sighting report below, was referring to this sighting I received sometime ago. You can find this report here: Large Orange Object Spotted Over Greymouth West Coast New Zealand - http://worldufos.blogspot.ca/2012/03/large-orange-object-spotted-over.html

Hi Brian, we were Googling UFO sightings, and my nana had just finished telling me about seeing one large orange light when travelling between Westport and Greymouth a few years ago, then we came across your website.

She thought she was the only one who had seen it, as her partner who was driving at the time didn't see it.

We left a comment in your website, 'The Vike Factor, into the Paranormal' which we described it a bit more in as well. It looked still for a minute or so, then next thing it was moving really fast and I was thinking it was coming towards us.

If you would like to contact my nana for any more information on the sighting of this, you can get to her through her partners email address: (removed)

Would be nice to hear back from you about this.

Red Light/Object In The Sky Over Mount Carmel Schagen West Of Nelspruit South Africa


Date:  February 5, 2015
Time:  Approximately 8:00 p.m.

Saw red light over Mount Carmel earlier.

Additional Information:

Hi, Mount Carmel at Schagen West of Nelspruit towards Jhb.

Hi, it was last night. (Thursday 5 February) at about 20:00). I'm not sure about the time.

From our veranda here on the farm, I looked at Mount Carmel to the west and saw a red light just lower than the tall tower light that is at the top of the mountain.

My hubby said it must be a Vodacom tower, but after a few minutes, it disappeared.

It could not have been a Vodacom tower light then, hey?

Regards.

Date:  February 2, 2015
Time:  Approximately 6:50 p.m.

My father, friend and I saw a weird multi colored flashing star over Maesteg last night at around 18:50.

We got out the binoculars to take a better look it, it was flashing red, blue, green, orange and a kind of ultra violet purple.

I don't know what it was, but it was there for about 10 minutes and then slowly moved.

If you have any information as to what it might be, could you let me know.

Thanks.

Ex Airline Pilot With Numerous Eyewitnesses Observe Domed Disk UFO On The Road To Sao Paulo Brazil (Written Report/Audio Interview)


From Brian Vike's UFO Files.

"The Vike Report"

Date of Sighting: May 6, 1994
Time of Sighting: 0330 (3:30 a.m.)- 0415 (4:15 a.m.) Local Time.

Location of Sighting: near Guarantingueta, (20 KM)
Closest town: Cachoeira Paulista (5 KM) State of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Number of witnesses: 4
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Domed disk.

Full Description of event/sighting: Background: I am an airline pilot (now retired) and I am also a qualified meteorologist and air traffic controller. I consider myself an excellent aircraft observer.

A group of us were returning from flight simulator training in Rio de Janeiro on the road to Sao Paulo, Brazil.

We departed Rio late at night and drove along the main highway and at about 3:15 a.m.. I was sleeping in the rear of the car which was traveling at high speed.

The car was being driven by a local chauffeur and inside it was me, a senior airline captain at the time, an older flight engineer from the U.S. and my girlfriend who was a flight attendant and a pilot also.

I was awakened by my girlfriend who pointed out a light in the sky which had been following us for a while, according to her. It was a bright red light in the sky and my first impression was that it was a radio antenna obstacle light high on a mountain.

However we were traveling fast on a flat area and there were no mountains around and the light was keeping up with us. (Initially the light was at our 7 o'clock position on the left side of the car and then advanced to a 9 o'clock position)

The light was moving erratically in a side ways and up and down motion, but keeping its relative position to us, impossible for a stationary object.

I thought of a helicopter flying out there, but there were no position lights or strobe visible and the light was moving in a very odd way for a helicopter. I am a helicopter pilot as well.

The lights started to change from red to yellow to white, green and even blue. The lights were of changing intensity and reminded me of a dance room rotating light sphere or "disco ball."

This continued for at least five more minutes and we slowed down from 80-90 miles per hour to 40 and the light kept its relative position to us.

Traffic on the highway was light, but we reached a point where there was a bus, two or three trucks and several cars parked on the side of the road and people were outside of their vehicles watching the object in the sky.

It was a clear, but dark night with no moon, there was a cloud cover, but it was high probably over 10,000 feet and apparently the object was initially flying at 3-4000 feet and a mile away from us.

I asked the driver to pull to the side of the road and I came out of the car, followed by my girlfriend. The object was now descending and at a much lower altitude and closer.

After a few minutes it was real low and hovering to the south side of the highway. The top lights were dimmed and the object was hovering but moving closer to our position.

I could not hear any sound and the lights were now dimmed but still changing colors and I could see the shape of the object and it was the familiar "flying saucer" dome shaped object.

I walked two hundred feet on the side of the road towards the object which was hovering low, no sound came from it and the night was absolutely still except for an occasional vehicle passing down the road. There were several vehicles stopped on the side of the road further down and I walked back to the car quickly to get a camera.

We had an excellent professional Nikon camera with us. I opened the trunk to get the camera but we had taken many pictures in Rio and we had no film left.

My girlfriend joined me and we walked back towards the object which was floating three or four hundred feet away from us, dimly lit now and probably at less than two hundred feet above the ground.

She stood back frightened by the sight but I was not afraid and walked quite close to the object maybe within two hundred feet. I actually crossed the dangerous highway to get a closer look.

I walked into some grassy area until I was stopped by a barbed wire fence. At this point, my closest approach to the object I was probably two hundred feet away.

There were a few dim lights on the edge of the object which pulsed slowly every few seconds, the lights looked square and they grew bigger when the brightness increased and smaller when they dimmed.

The object was not illuminated but the bottom emitted some kind of bluish vapor and when I got the closest to the object I felt like a soft breeze was blowing into my short hair, though it was not windy at the time.

It felt like an electrical charge was coming out of the object which moved slowly with a rocking motion not unlike that of a boat going through small waves.

My girlfriend had walked back to the car and was standing behind the car. Even though the object was not lit other than the small lights pulsating on the edge, I could see its outline and it's top clearly. In the darkness the color looked like a reddish gray.

The object was quite large and I estimated it to be at least 70 feet in diameter and about 30 feet high. It was just hovering in the air at about 120-150 feet high.

Some of the other spectators, probably a truck driver, shone a powerful spot light on the object and there were a couple of flashes of light, maybe someone using a camera flash. The second group of people was quite distant probably over 800 feet.

Shortly after the spot light illuminated the object, which looked metallic gray, not unlike the color of an aircraft, when illuminate the object started to move more noticeably and the slight rocking motion built up to become a swinging movement which reminded me the movement of an aircraft coming in for landing on a crosswind.

There was a change of position and the object was not totally upright but rather listing about 20-30 degrees to one side.

Suddenly, there was a few flashes of multicolor lights from the top of the object and a faint bluish-greenish glow showed from the bottom part and the object started to float away quietly towards the south gaining altitude slowly at first and then increasingly fast. When the object started to move I felt some vibration and heard a faint, low pitch humming sound.

After another multicolor light display the object climbed straight up very fast and still silently. It changed direction several times in a series of sharp, right angle turns and then disappeared.

While I was close to the object there was a faint smell of ionization, not unlike that smell present in high power radio station transmitting rooms, when they used vacuum tubes and there was also a taste of metal in my mouth.

The cars and trucks started leaving after the object flew away and we climbed in the car and drove on until we reached a truck stop restaurant further down the road were several other witnesses who had stopped for coffee. Our driver, who had stayed inside the car, told me that there was a lot of static in the car's radio while the object was nearby.

Some people at the restaurant told us that sightings are common in that area. I also remembered that in 1972 I was flying near the same area one night and an airliner ahead of my airplane reported a UFO.

I did not see the object myself, but listened to the radio conversation between the airliner, the air traffic controllers and other airplanes on the area. There was a U.S. military aircraft in the area that night in 1972 and after landing I talked to the crew which had seen the object.

The subject never came up again after that night. In 30 years of flying and being a control tower operator for some time, I heard many UFO stories but had never actually seen one until that night in Brazil in 1994.

Upon my return to the U.S. some weeks later, I filed Reports of this sighting to every possible government agency but never received any reply.

The next day after arriving in the city of Sao Paulo I was at the airport and after identifying myself as a visiting airline pilot I reported the sighting to the Brazilian aviation authorities who listened to the report and took some notes. I made a couple of sketches of what the object looked like and its apparent path of flight in the area of the sighting.

The size of this audio clip is 66.5 mbs and the interview is 48 minutes in length.

10 Inverted Horseshoe Shaped UFOs In The Sky Over Hyde Park London UK (Excellent Diagram)


From Brian Vike’s UFO Files.

Date: 1967
Time: Daytime sighting.

Hi Brian, This is a report of a sighting I had with my family when I was about 8 years old in 1967, but which has stuck in my mind very clearly because it was so weird.

We were having lunch in Hyde Park, London during a family outing there in the summer of that year.

As we sat eating and talking, I suddenly noticed several dark coloured, inverted horseshoe-shaped objects, bobbing up and down as if on strings dangling from the sky, away over some buildings in the distance.

There was about 10 of them and they were just so weird that I pointed them out to my mum and dad, who didn’t have a clue what they were or even what they might be.

As I said, they were kind of upside down ‘U’ shaped things, and I seem to remember they had maybe a couple of lighter coloured spots on them.


I also got the peculiar feeling they were aware of us in some way.

Anyway, there they were, in broad daylight, bobbing up and down as if suspended in mid-air above central London on wires. No-one else seemed to notice them.

 They seemed to be different sizes, but this may be because they were different distances away from us, but I have never seen anything like them since. Nor do I have any idea myself, as a now grown adult, what on earth they may have been.

I don’t believe fancy advertising using expensive props was used a lot in the sixties and I certainly don’t believe that civilian aircraft could look like that or appear so low as that over London.

So unless someone else can offer a feasible explanation, they remain a mystery to me.

Thought you might like to hear about them anyway. Thanks.

Regards.
